I dont know if any of you have seen this horror film advertised or anything, but this is one movie I recommend you pass on.

This is probably one of the biggest wastes of time you will ever see. Everything I read about it hyped it to be horrific and people shouldnt watch it if they had a weak heart and all that other bs.

Really, aside from about 6 frames, there's nothing to see. When the action starts, the camera cuts away and leaves everything to your imagination. Of the 3 main characters, you never see two of them die.

Thats pretty sad for a horror movie. I dont know about you, but I pay for a horror movie to see people getting offed in all sorts of nasty fashion. Not to see the killer, see his weapon, and then have the camera cut away and then see the body about 20 minutes later when another character happens to see it.

From the damage to the bodies, I can probably guess what happened, but if I wanted to sit and imagine what happened, I wouldnt have rented the movie. Id just sit around thinkin shit up.

Cheaper, yes. But its just not as entertaining you see.


I recommend you pass on this one. Theres a few good frames in there as I mentioned, but when you compile the entire movie, its one big waste of time.

I agree with you Wallcrawler. I watched Hostel on Wednesday and heard that it was supposed to be this massive gore fest that had people running out of the theatres but it turned out pretty lame. I enjoyed Final Destination 3 a lot more. At least you got to see all the gory kill scenes!!!

What about Wolf Creek? The one directed by Tarantino. That one should be good.

Wolf Creek was stupid, no where near the hype. I enjoyed Hostel a lot for some reason.

Anyone seen Return of the Living Dead 4??? It went straight to DVD but I'm a big zombie fan and will probably rent it anyways.

I like to think that there's more to these movies than meets the eye. Does the surgical saw symbolize his inability to get close to people? Does the staple gun symbolize his frustration with modern impersonal industry?

Wolf Creek was so so. Did not meet the hype I was expecting the next Chainsaw Massacre.

Hostel was very disappointing. The T&A at the beginning was very nice. The rest of the movie was just a blood and guts. Wasnt really that scary of a movie. A waste of time unless you like T&A and blood and guts.

This will be my rant for the month, apparently. Wallcrawler, please don't take this personally. I'll preface this by saying this is only my opinion...

This attitude is what is wrong with modern film audiences. Everyone wants to see bigger, badder, grosser the horror and suspense genre today sucks for this very reason.

Alfred Hitchcock, the Master of Suspense, once said that suspense is not the action it's the anticipation of the action. Unfortunately, most audiences want to see the action, while Hitchcock (and few filmmakers since) believed the mind can imagine things so much worse than you can ever put on celluloid.

However, as Wallcrawler states, audiences want to turn their brain off and have everything handed to them on a platter, without having to think about the film. As such, this attitude spills onto all other genres, forcing filmmakers to generate reel upon reel of Fast and Furious garbage, intended only appease the masses "Come one, come all! Check your brain at the door! Eight dollars, please!"

I blame the masses for the tripe Hollywood gives us year after year.
